Installing In a New Light 

By Angela Fuller, Assistant Registrar/Curatorial Assistant

In preparation for the Taft Museum of Art's Bicentennial Infrastructure Project, Taft staff moved nearly 500 artworks, including paintings, sculptures, furniture, and decorative arts objects, out of the permanent collection galleries in the historic house over the course of six weeks. Our team consisted of four collections department staff members, four professional art handlers, plus four Taft employees cross-trained from other museum departments. We installed over 80 objects in the Taft's Fifth Third Gallery for the exhibition In a New Light: Treasures from the Taft, transported nearly 50 pieces to the Cincinnati Museum Center for Borrowed Gems from the Taft Museum of Art with the help of a professional art shipper, and packed the remainder to be stored off view for the duration of the project.
